Elastomeric Paint?


Hi...

For a 50 year old stucco house in Southern Cal, should I use an elastomeric paint, or 'regular' acrylic? At this point, I'm planning on using
Sherwin Williams.

There are some hairline cracks, but nothing major.

Is there anything different about spraying elastomeric paint that I should
prepare for?


Thanks...

Gary

I would use a regular acrylic, elastomerics are good but they are harder to spray and you need a pretty decent sprayer to get a good flow to them.

Elastomeric Paint?


True to both answers. Elastomeric paint is the best paint to use on a stucco building BUT you have to do an awesome prep job for it to work. Caulk/repair all crack! You have to make sure water cannot get behind the elastomeric. But if prepped well, nothing is better. Makes your house cooler, seals it, strecthes and expands in the heat. SW, Pratt, Ben Moore, Dunn Edwards, Vista, all sell good elastomeric paint.
